A Threefold Goal
"Since, then, I heard of this faith of yours in the Lord Jesus and the practical way in which you are expressing it towards fellow-Christians, I thank God continually for you and I never give up praying for you; and this is my prayer. That God, the God of our Lord Jesus Christ and the all-glorious Father, will give you spiritual wisdom and the insight to know more of him: that you may receive that inner illumination of the spirit which will make you realize how great is the hope to which he is calling you — the magnificence and splendor of the inheritance promised to us — and how tremendous is the power available to us who believe in God." Ephesians 1:15-19
What a wonderful trio of goals for our day today:
1. To know more and more of Jesus
2. To realize how great is our hope and inheritance in the Kingdom of Heaven
3. To walk in the power available to us by His Spirit
Shall we give these a try today?
Absolutely! Paul also said in Ephesians 5 " And I pray that Christ will be more and more at home in your hearts, living within you as you trust in him. May your roots go down deep into the soil of God’s marvelous love; 18-19 and may you be able to feel and understand, as all God’s children should, how long, how wide, how deep, and how high his love really is; and to experience this love for yourselves, though it is so great that you will never see the end of it or fully know or understand it.". He then said in Galatians 5 "25 If we are living now by the Holy Spirit’s power, let us follow the Holy Spirit’s leading in every part of our lives.". Absolutely!
